I didn't think it was a relevant argument as you can still write
libraries for distribution. Keep in mind that the standard
library has to be maintained and API's cannot easily be
redesigned because of backwards compatibility.
Even if C/C++ have small standard libraries they provide a
depressing amount of low quality functionality that one should
avoid. But it is kept in for backwards compatibility and
sometimes even updated and extended...
That not a good thing.
